Confrontation is never easy.
Confrontation with peers is even less easy.
Confrontation with peers that don’t want to respect you, is the worst of all.
Odd One Out
But when you are an odd one out, that’s exactly what you get. More often than you want, you come across people who bully you for who you are. And while you don’t ask them to agree with you or to follow your lead, they also disrespect you and get mad when you don’t change your mind when they say you have to.
It happened to us a lot over the years, but the worst ones are those that were once close to us.
Those that you spend years of your life with, but still don’t accept you for who you are.
Those that act like negative vampires, trying to suck all the energy out of you.
They hope that they can change you and make you into someone they think you should be.
Those people are real life triggers. Knowing they are going to cross your path makes you prepare in ways you are not used too. Even the strongest Odd One INs get caught in their webs sometimes.
Sometimes even the strongest people get triggered.
Triggered by their past, triggered by their peers, triggered by themselves…
It doesn’t make them less strong, it makes them human.
Not being accepted by the people closest to you, can be a big trigger for all Odd Ones,.. IN or out.
Combine that with ghosts of your pasts and your in for the ride of a lifetime.
